Thank you, Los Alamitos Unified School District, Members of the Board, Dr. Pulver, staff members and faculty for the opportunity to contribute to the successful completion of your new 86,000 square foot, 3-story STEM building that is designed to solve the educational challenges of today and tomorrow, and to meet the demands of the future generations of students as they build upon their skills and fluency in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. As an architectural expression of this inspirational program, you see the large, framed Los Al Royal Blue “Window of Opportunity” above the main entry that represents a new public face to the community as it welcomes curious minds, with the collective goal of elevating the civic identity of the school to a post-secondary standard. Standing as a beacon of achievement in the community, this new facility with high-performing standards of Los Alamitos High School will prepare tomorrow’s leaders for great success beyond the classroom, wherever life takes them. We can’t wait to see what you accomplish!

Westgroup Designs pulled out a win for Most Spirited at the annual PeopleSpace 2022 Annual Bocce Ball Charity Tournament at Newport Dunes. With an Aloha theme for the event, our team channeled our 80s vibe to bring Magnum PI back to life! The real winners were all of the charities that benefited from thousands of dollars donated including Autism Speaks, the ASPCA and our charity, NEGU supporting those with childhood cancer and their families. Thanks to PeopleSpace - A Best In Class Haworth Partner for another successful event. Check out our recap video below:

Westgroup Designs showed up and showed out at the annual IIDA Southern California Chapter's Fashion Show to great acclaim! Our team’s selection was the adaptation of the musical Into The Woods (the dark version of Grimm's Fairy Tales), for this year’s theme, Broadway on the Beach. Teams had one hour to grab fabric remnants from the available pile and incorporate design material samples into costumes to illustrate the theme! Check out Red and her alter ego, the Wolf, in our entry below! All leftover fabric from the event is turned into tote bags by volunteers, for foster youth, and presented to several local organizations.
